about

Life is Easy is a disturbingly serene look at unhappiness and desolation.

A collection of nine songs recorded entirely live in State Shirt's bedroom studio—using a technique called live looping—along with an array of obsolete electronics, guitars, and his voice.

Each song on the album was written and recorded live in one day—often starting out as an improvisation. Gently traveling from weird ambient swells, ghostly harmonies, funereal rhythms, freakish beatboxing, and disconcerting noises, Life is Easy takes you on a mournful march to the darkest corners of hopelessness.

I’m not here to be your friend
I’m not here to be your enemy
I’m here to cause you pain
I’m here to keep you down.

Track Name: Life is Easy
you hurt the ones you love
you raped the ones you love
you killed the ones you love
you beat the ones you love
it’s so easy to be alive.
Track Name: Frenemies
You don’t own your song
You don’t own your melody
You don’t own your life

You can’t stand here
You can’t stand it

I’m not here to be your friend
I’m not here to be your enemy
I’m here to cause you pain
I’m here to keep you down
Track Name: A Happy Future
Calm down, you don’t need to worry.
Slow down, you don’t need to hurry!
It controls your every move
It controls your every thought
until you can’t feel anything anymore
The sound of silence, sold. It’s okay!
Track Name: Broke Your Promise
You broke your promise
You broke your heart
Track Name: March of the Drones
the drones are coming
the drones are coming
they believe we are together
they believe we’re not alone
they control us now and forever
they control us now and then
in another life, in another time?
we’ll kill them again.
we’ll be free again.
in another life, in another time?
we’ll be free again.
keep your song alive!
